  • A quick question on stick technique

    I was taught to Grip the stick between the thumb and the first (outermost) joint of the index finger. When I am playing lite rock I can play for hours but when I switch over to rock or hard rock I start to get cramps in my right hand. You rock players, how are you gripping the sticks?

      Check into the Moeller Method as described by Dave Weckl on his How To Develop Technique video. The key is to be relaxed and let the bounce work for you.
